Hi fellow admins,
I have a peculiar requirement. We have two offices. People from second
office(say #2) want to connect to the server in first office(say #1). They
want to run the GUI applications in the office #1 server from office #2.
I tried to do this with VNC server and it works fine. But VNC is goes thro
unencrypted(open) connection. Is there a way to do this in a secured
way(read that xdmcp is not possible as it uses UDP).
Inside our network(LAN) if connect from one system to other thro ssh and
start an gui application that application shows up in the client. This
doesn't happen when i connect to server and start gui apps(says display not
set). iptables runs in the server. Do i have to open any port for that?
Any help or pointer in this regard is appreciated.
I'm working with Fedora Core 4 and I'd like to know if it's there any
way for using bootsplash with it. I know fedora uses rhgb for bootsplash
but, is that the only way? Because rhgb starts X and I'd prefer some
ligther as bootsplash... In case the only way is using rhgb, how can I
change splash images? Just changing the files in /usr/share/rhgb by
hand? Any special format, size or resolution for them?
I used ubuntu, but it has problem with suspension on my laptop. So I pick
fedora as my desktop since I use Gnome most of the time.
Here is one small question but it'll be very helpful to me. I can
suspend the computer from the console by issuing 'hibernate' as
root. I'm looking for a way to enable an option in the logout dialogue
(menu: Desktop->Log Out) so that It'll look like this:
* Log out
* Shut down
* Suspend the computer
* Restart the computer
I've enable the suspend command in gdm.conf and can access it from
the gdm login screen however not in the logout dialogue. Any ideas?
There is a process, firefox-bin that keeps popping up in the System Monitor,
consuming 143 MB of memory. I have somewhat of a limited machine.
What is the process doing? It runs even when the browser is closed. Is it
part of the yum or Up2date process, Up2date kind of kills the performance on
this machine also.
We have been working at Yumex we need a little bit of help. The newest
version of Yumex has a group browsing feature and we don't really have a
icon for that. I am not a artist or familiar with making icons. I have a
idea for a icon:
Can someone direct me to a graphic in bluecurve or help me out in
refining this concept and making a icon. It has to be a 48x48 graphic
that user can click on the yumex window.
Also attached is a yumex window:
This will be placed on the left column above where it says "Groups".
Thank you for your help.
